conditions, a big debate, steve liesman's nemesis talks a lot about people being beamed to mars in. your mind what is happening to the job market? are we creating jobs? is that why it's coming down, or is it because people -- the degree of discouraged workers? what's your sense of how quickly it's fallen because of new employment? >> so on the first question the chain cpi versus the fixed weight cpi is a technical issue. the change cpi is better for most economists because it allows for changes in the mix of goods and services that people actually consume more effectively. however, whether that's more appropriate for say social security indexing or not, i think that's ultimately a political decision. i suppose the rejoinder would be that neither the cpi nor the change cpi may be particularly a good measure for the cost of living of social security recipients, so those are the kinds of questions that congress is going to have to deal with. second part of your question was -- >> what actually is happening to the debate over the extent to which unemployment rate is falling, new jobs versus

the situation is not temporary, high growth rates are gone forever. joining us now, steve liesman and an economist from ftm financial. steve, is it really as bad as all of that? we're talking about some very anemic numbers. >> the question is, what part is bad? i really disagree with this report in the sense that i don't see how he can possibly know what the growth rate is going to be in 2050. i don't think he knows what the growth rate is going to be next year let alone in 2050. the second thing wrong with this prediction is growth rates are something that are within control of a society or nation. with the policies -- now, i think he's right we're aiming right now for a growth rate that may be unattainable. long-term, a society cannot exactly choose but can adjust this level of growth. third, some of the things that he's most concerned about, for example, global competition, are some of the things that make me optimistic about the future, not pessimistic. >> but lindsay, part of his reasoning is we're adding too much debt to the equation. debt servicing takes up more of our growth a

concession for the president. and our colleague steve leisman has been also doing reporting on this. he just spoke to me by phone as i was preparing to go on with a source familiar with the talks who noted a wind energy tax credit is preserved as the president eluded to in his remarks. also depreciation for businesses with spending money on new equipment. all of those things arement wills of the tax deal, but until they get the sequester, the budget elements worked out, the deal's not going to be finished. >> now, the deduction phaseout. this is relatively new. any idea at this point which deductions we're talking about and any timetable for them? >> i have to confess, bill, i don't know how exactly that works. these are provisions that were first initiated in the 1990s as a way of getting more revenue from people at the top without raising their rates. so what you do is you take the same deductions that other people can take and you limit their value over a certain income level. this is in addition to something the president's proposed of making the tax deductions for people above

essentially, you have a radicalized group within the republican caucus as steve said. it really essentially is going to help take this over the cliff unless the speaker acts as speaker of the entire house and not only the leader of his dysfunctional party. >> representative levin, what are we talking about in terms moving the deficit? how much money do you raise with these tax increases? and then i -- i guess the next question, naturally, is where are the spending cuts? >> let me just mention what was discussed apparently between the speaker and the president. about a trillion-two in tax increases and they would come for income over 250,000. most of it income above that and essentially would have raised $1.2 trillion. on the spending side, they discussed cuts of about $1 trillion, for example, $400 billion from health. so the speaker and the president had, i think, some meaningful discussion. i think the president was more than forthcoming. but essentially, the speaker decided to go back to the conference on a very different path, thinking he could pick up a conference that had

systems, especially for pcs, are massively pirated throughout china. in fact, steve ballmer complained earlier this year that as a result of this rampant intellectual property theft microsoft is making less money in china than in the netherlands. >> right. >> i'm not saying that that same fate is going to befall apple but the same danger certainly exists and there's certainly an element of poetic justice here because companies like apple and like microsoft, and all the other outsourcing u.s. companies told us we should dramatically expand business dealings with china even though problems like intellectual property theft were far from being solved. >> you know, max, if apple can't get a deal with china mobile which has 80% of the market, why sell iphone in china at all, especially when we're talking about such rampant piracy itself? >> a good question. speaks to the bigger issue. china mobile wasn't willing to cut the huge kind of subsidy deals that apple relies on with carriers like verizon and at&t and vodafone and the international carriers and, therefore, they are left to
